Withdrawn - Possible Amendment to and Repeal of Rules Governing Campaign Finance Regulation and Reporting; Independent Expenditures; Economic Interest Disclosure; and Audits and Investigations; Minnesota Rules, chapters 4501 through 4525; Revisor's ID Number R-04450
The Campaign Finance and Public Disclosure Board was considering rule amendments and repeals that would have 1) clarified conduct, actions, and relationships that prevent an expenditure from being independent and related topics; 2) clarified which expenditures qualify as noncampaign disbursements and related topics; 3) clarified the disclaimer requirements and exemptions for statements of attribution on independent expenditures and campaign material; 4) allowed staff review investigations to be resolved more quickly through the use of findings, conclusions, and orders; 5) clarified how to report reimbursements and the purpose of expenditures; 6) clarified when contributions made electronically are received; 7) specified the deadlines for actions necessary to qualify for public subsidy payments in a special election called under Minnesota Statutes section 204B.13; and 8) revisited the definition of securities for economic interest statements to ensure that it is not overbroad.
The Board is withdrawing this rulemaking because the potential rules were enacted into statute during the 2018 legislative session.
